If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas. ~ George Bernard Shaw
That is why we want to get together and exchange ideas.
While many groups are working for peace and are opposing the military mindset of our society, we each have been pushing our little part of it with some success, but little notice by the general public or the media.
Several of us, involved with the American Friends Service Committee PA, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Code Pink, Peace Action, Anti-War Committee know that there are many more groups and individuals who contribute in their own way or would like to bring about a more peaceful world.
We believe that if we pool our efforts and ideas, that we could be a more powerful force and have more impact on events in Washington and the world.
Since President Obama’s election to a second term, he himself has said that he needs to hear from us, and so does the rest of our government.
